Schaefermeyer Home Addition Vlog #35

Today they prepared for sheet rock.

Because the trusses were wrong they had to shim them down.  They also had to re-locate the electrical line that was in the existing wall.

At the start of the video I had mentioned how I would have ran the wire.  At the end of the day I was upset when I came home to find what I did!

How is it that the general contractor doesn't check these things to make sure everything works.  Why should I be the one to have to find these things and get them done right?  Didn't I hire you to do this?

What am I paying you for?

This was a pretty good day.  They hung the sheetrock in the basement, office and loft.  They also took down the kitchen wall.

There is a pretty funny part in this video which I'm still not sure how somebody does it!

The work that happened today wasn't caught on camera due to not knowing what was going to happen.

As you can see in the thumbnail, I let the kids color on the wall before the tore it down!  They had a fun time doing things that they know they aren't supposed to do.

This was October 26, 2015.  It took some time to get the cameras setup to video this.  I'm happy with the shots.  They blew in the insulation because they don't have access to blow this in after the sheetrock gets installed.

We got Aaron on video telling us he would be cutting in Mason's window for his bedroom tomorrow. That would be October 27th.  Needless to say even on November 4th we still don't have the window cut in.

This is really frustrating because we are paying him to do the work and it's not happening.  It's frustrating because I know that I can do the work myself.  But I'm paying him to do the work!

Let me apologize for how lame this video is.

I wanted to document a few things and talk about the progress.

Today they came to finish up some of the electrical wiring.  They touched up the HVAC.

Then they delivered the sheetrock.

Funny story about the sheetrock is that one of the guys that was bringing in some tripped and fell.  The sheetrock hit the wall.  Brittney said, "Watch out for that first step, it's a doosie!"  The other guys couldn't stop saying that the whole time they were there delivering.

They started running electrical lines today.  They didn't finish but, neither did the video.  They turned the breaker off that the camera was plugged into.

Oh well, so it goes.

Today Questar Gas came and moved our gas meter from the front of the house to the side of the addition.

It was worth the money to have it moved.

I also purchased a wide angle lens for the camera for better viewing.

Check out Brittney making fun of me!  Luckily she mentioned that she did something in one of them so, I was on the lookout for it!

Thanks for watching.

October 17th was tar paper and no shingles due to the cold weather and the shingles being "too" stuck together.

I think it was a cop-out to be able to postpone for another day.

It has rained and it did stay dry!  We are happy about that.

We have a roof... well the sheeting is installed!

I didn't talk in this one...  I think more people might watch this one.

Simple day of installing the front windows and fixing the trusses.

Some progress everyday is a good thing!

Today they installed the trusses.  Just before the crane arrived, our framer Chuck, sprained his ankle!  He did a pretty good number on it and should probably be off of it for a week.

Knowing Chuck he will probably be back soon to finish up!

Today October 9, 2015 was NOT a good day!

I hadn't planned on anybody showing up to do work today.  I was planning on working out in my shop getting my CNC machine working again so I could present again at the Salt Lake Mini Maker Faire.

Needless to say, my machine is still not working and I'm not going to present.

I'm sorry for the lack of interesting stuff in this video but, some days you step in it, some days are it!

Monday we brought our newest addition to our family!  Today, Wednesday we brought her home!

This is some pretty interesting times here at our house.  So much is going on and we are trying to keep it calm and collected among all the chaos!
